From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes a new novel in her Blood and Ash series…

Is Love Stronger Than Vengeance?

A Betrayal…

Everything Poppy has ever believed in is a lie, including the man she was falling in love with. Thrust among those who see her as a symbol of a monstrous kingdom, she barely knows who she is without the veil of the Maiden. But what she does know is that nothing is as dangerous to her as him. The Dark One. The Prince of Atlantia. He wants her to fight him, and that’s one order she’s more than happy to obey. He may have taken her, but he will never have her.

A Choice….

Casteel Da’Neer is known by many names and many faces. His lies are as seductive as his touch. His truths as sensual as his bite. Poppy knows better than to trust him. He needs her alive, healthy, and whole to achieve his goals. But he’s the only way for her to get what she wants—to find her brother Ian and see for herself if he has become a soulless Ascended. Working with Casteel instead of against him presents its own risks. He still tempts her with every breath, offering up all she’s ever wanted. Casteel has plans for her. Ones that could expose her to unimaginable pleasure and unfathomable pain. Plans that will force her to look beyond everything she thought she knew about herself—about him. Plans that could bind their lives together in unexpected ways that neither kingdom is prepared for. And she’s far too reckless, too hungry, to resist the temptation.

A Secret…

But unrest has grown in Atlantia as they await the return of their Prince. Whispers of war have become stronger, and Poppy is at the very heart of it all. The King wants to use her to send a message. The Descenters want her dead. The wolven are growing more unpredictable. And as her abilities to feel pain and emotion begin to grow and strengthen, the Atlantians start to fear her. Dark secrets are at play, ones steeped in the blood-drenched sins of two kingdoms that would do anything to keep the truth hidden. But when the earth begins to shake, and the skies start to bleed, it may already be too late.

In this highly anticipated sequel to Jennifer Armentrout’s successful fantasy series, From Blood and Ash, A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire picks up right where it left off. 

This is probably going to be one of those reviews where I can’t say too much so as not to spoil anything but also where I want to just SCREAM how excellent this book was. 

We find Poppy left dealing with a wide range of emotions left from a betrayal that cut her deep. Not really a reader of fantasy(I think I read, maybe three before this) This sequel had it all. Action, suspense, drama and romance. It had all the romance. 

“There is no side of you that is not as beautiful as the other half. Not a single inch isn’t stunning.”

I don’t usually watch much fantasy shows, I mean, I’ve never seen one episode of GOT and I’m okay with that, but if it’s anything like AKoF&F then sign me up! The action was off the charts, suspenseful and entertaining to where it was playing out in my head like a movie scene. 

What I loved most about this sequel is the journey that BOTH Hawke and Poppy take, individually and together as they both work toward a common goal. 

I didn’t think that Jen could outdo From Blood and Ash as being my top read of 2020, but she did! I immediately started rereading AKoF&F(even though I have about 4 more reviews to read and do) and it is easily, EASILY my top read of 2020!
